1988- My First Published Cartoon
The strip on top is mine. It ran in my college paper (The Highlander, U.C. Riverside). Not sure why I called the thing "Lost In America". There was a movie with the same title. I never saw it.
The cat was named Flick and his nemesis was the rodent creature, who was always driving him crazy with stupid questions. I was proud of it at the time but now it looks very crude to me.
I included the stip under it because it was done by another student, Steve Breen, who became a Pulitzer Prize winning editorial cartoonist.
As for me, I dabbled in cartoons on and off (mostly off) until I cooked up this blog.
